Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We were upgraded to a family room. Room was spotless, with plenty of spare pillows and bedding. The bed was extremely comfortable as were the pillows. Cooking facilities including microwave and all plates and utensils were available. Overall it was a very pleasant stay.

We stayed here for a weekend and we are really glad we chose to stay here.
The bed was extremely comfortable and we both slept well. The en-suite is tiny but it did the job required.
The best thing about this place are the friendly proprietors.
Thanks for your great hospitality. Hope to see you again soon.

My family and I came to stay here during a weekend of history hunting at the local asylums. We stayed in the family cabin and it was beautiful and clean. It slept the 4 of us comfortably! The staff were wonderful too, offering us a late check out because they knew we would be having a late night! It really is the little things that sets places apart.

A wonderfully warm motel. Great staff and very friendly. Show no bias towards motorcycle riders and made us feel totally welcome. Great location to the town and all the facilities there. Would highly recommend it.

Absolutely loved this motel. Friends and I stayed for one night only but were very happy with the room and the service provided. Traveled from Adelaide for the Aradale Lunatic Asylum overnight ghost investigation the Friday night before so needed a nice comfortable place to stay before our drive back on the Sunday. Allowed us to check in at 11, much appreciated as we'd had no sleep the night prior! Once again, the owners were lovely and gave us a nice warm welcome. Will definitely stay here again if we're ever over that way! Thanks! Emma, George, Carly & Daniel.

Very clean, friendly and provides what it says on the tin! Only negative would be that the bathrooms are very small, but it all is very clean. The owner was very friendly and helpful with restaurant advice.
